Gray Jays in Algonquin

On our way home from Thanksgiving in the Muskokas, we stopped in Algonquin Park again and this time brought along raisin bread to feed the Gray Jays.

These birds are also known as the Canada Jay and Whiskey Jack. They are clever birds and don't migrate, so they're getting ready for a long, cold winter in Algonquin Park.

It was a thrill to have them land on my hand. Very cool.

THere's not much I love more than feeding a bird from my hand!

So now you can tell us -- what is a bird in the hand worth?
